9-9-18 – Thorns in the flesh

Hi everyone, Let’s continue talking about forgiveness. St Paul refers to the “thorn in the flesh” (2 Cor 12:7-9). Paul was referring to those sins that regularly appeared in Paul. At the same time, Paul said God equipped him with the grace to manage this thorn. Whether God intended this thorn to be never removed is up for debate. The thorn though becomes a saving grace because it helps draw Paul back to God time and time again. Unconfessed sin can also lead to illnesses of many kinds. God doesn’t want us to have illness. Remember he didn’t cause it. Another symptom of sin is fear. Fear puts harmful chemicals into our bodies. Fear can lead to paralysis, heart and breathing issues and other serious ailments. First check with your doctor whether it is stress related and can be fixed with rest or medication. Otherwise you may consider faith as a possible antidote. In Mk 11:22 and Hebrews 11:6, God commands us to have faith in order to please him and to ask him for help, forgiveness and healing. Faith does not come from the mind. It can only come from our heart. Fear releases the provision of the enemy. God though has the final word on fear. Family and inherited sickness can also be prevalent in humans. Examples include divorce, suicide and heart conditions. These with all intent and purposes are curses and they need to be broken. These may require qualified people to pray over you for healing. When Jesus died he took on himself sin, curses and death itself. Jesus took sin and exchanged it with righteousness. He took on sickness and exchanged it wholeness and health. He took on curses and exchanged it with liberty and peace. Friends don’t let your fears, unforgiveness and long-term illnesses undermine what Jesus has done for us on the cross. He has purchased everything so that we might be saved and set free. Don’t be afraid to ask for healing from the ultimate healer God. Remember the story of Naaman in 2 Kings. He was afflicted with leprosy and he was told by Elisha via messenger to wash in the Jordan seven times. Because of his rank, he expected the prophet to personally heal him. To receive healing Naaman had to humble his pride. He had to demonstrate to God, that he was small before God. As soon as he did so, Naaman was cured immediately. Of course our bodies are temples of the Lord. So remember to eat well, exercise and get enough sleep. If you have any family or inherited sicknesses or curses and you’re interested in receiving healing contact the CCR Healing Rooms.

Brisbane Archdiocese Video Series – The Mass



2017 marks the 500th anniversary of the Reformation. Many historians consider the Reformation one of those epoch changing events in the history of the Western world. But what does it mean for people in Australia 500 years later? Was the Reformation just a series of pointless disputes which have little relevance to the church today? Or is the church today the living legacy of the Reformation, and if so, what does this mean for us? Join us as we ask these questions together.
